void ResolveAddressAsync(
	GeoCoordinate coordinate
)

Parameters

coordinate
Type: System.Device.Location.GeoCoordinate

The latitude/longitude location to resolve to an address.

The following example shows how to call ResolveAddressAsync.

static void ResolveAddressAsync()
{
    GeoCoordinateWatcher watcher = new GeoCoordinateWatcher(GeoPositionAccuracy.High);
    bool started = false;
    watcher.MovementThreshold = 1.0; // set to one meter
    started = watcher.TryStart(false, TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1000));

    if (started)
    {
        CivicAddressResolver resolver = new CivicAddressResolver();

        resolver.ResolveAddressCompleted += new EventHandler<ResolveAddressCompletedEventArgs>(resolver_ResolveAddressCompleted);

        if (watcher.Position.Location.IsUnknown == false)
        {
            resolver.ResolveAddressAsync(watcher.Position.Location);
        }
    }

}

static void resolver_ResolveAddressCompleted(object sender, ResolveAddressCompletedEventArgs e)
{
    if (!e.Address.IsUnknown)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Country: {0}, Zip: {1}",
                   e.Address.CountryRegion,
                   e.Address.PostalCode);
    }
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Unknown address.");
    }
}
